During the March 21, 2024 lahar evacuation drills, thousands of students walked to the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup, Washington to practice evacuating from a lahar generated by Mount Rainier. A lahar, or volcanic mudflow, could reach this area in about 3 hours.

您知道自己生活在“地震带”吗?这是真 的。纽约市等地过去曾发生过地震,将来 还会发生。如果您感到地面在震动,请确 保知道怎么做:趴下、掩护和稳住!

如果您感觉到地面在震动

趴下 掩护 稳住

From the Uēkahuna overlook, the new eruption at the summit of Kīlauea is visible. The farthest east fissure is near the to margin of downdropped block that formed during the 2018 summit collapse. The base of the main fissure, which is farthest west (right on the image), is approximately 70 meters wide.
